According to Stereogum, this is a diss track directed toward Drake. I don’t really get that, but then again, I don’t really get the whole hip-hop beef thing to begin with.
The video features people doing drugs in creative (to me) ways including at least one involving origami. There are also a few instances of that cool smoking-in-reverse camera trick and secret handshakes. So I love this, of course.
Footage from urban garden wonderland Brooklyn Grange. That’s a whole are of rooftop vegetation, folks. And this here is some mighty fine garden porn. I mean, wouldja get a load of the color in those tomatoes?
I’d like to take a moment to acknowledge that this song happened and I used to call it my favorite. As short as my obsession with Saves The Day might have been, I can never diss them. After all, they were kinda my gateway.
Oh em gee! It’s the fourth music video from the royal brat’s debut Li’l Golden Book. Here we hear her (say that five times fast) present a case against binge drinking. Unfortunately, the fierce instance of tickle guitar (scroll to 2:13) counteracts all her points, IMO. Robbie Neilson “directs” but I kind of have no idea what that means with this particular video. That’s not to say I don’t like it, that’s just to say that I don’t get it.
Oh, oh! Don’t forget, CMJers (and the rest of us stoopid Nu Yawkuhhz who decide to stick it out here year-round), Princess Chelsea and a slew of other golden kiwi poppers hit (le) poisson rouge Oct. 18 for New Zealand @ CMJ Showcase. The event is free for you smug little badge-holders. Everyone else should RSVP.
